Montana Legislature

Representative Ron Ehli, a Republican from Hamilton, was part of an interim committee that traveled the state for over a year studying the mental health issues. He says committee members, Republican and Democrat alike, came to one conclusion:

“Montana has a mental health crisis."

The response, at least from the Republican side, is a package of bills to enhance existing mental health services at the local level.

Ehli says the proposals total $8 million.

Elissa Washuta talks about and reads from her memoir, My Body is a Book of Rules.
